Plants are a natural for the kitchen and are an inexpensive way to bring botanical colors indoors.

Terra-cotta pots cost just a few dollars and they can be easily transformed with outdoor paint designed for terra cotta (available at craft stores). Paint the pots garden colors like sunflower or lemongrass and finish them off with stylish stripes created by wrapping the pots with ribbon. Resist campy rickrack and pompoms, and go for a contemporary look with retro madras plaid, edgy grommet ribbon or sleek trellis yarn. Pick a trim that goes with your decor and make sure it is colorfast. Group your new sunny pots by the sink to brighten up the dish rack. Or place one pot on top of the fridge, one by the pantry and one on your dinette table to spread bursts of yellow and green throughout the kitchen.
